Haruka's Secret Ep 1 - Wind Up

(note - for this episode of this show, I'll put up with subtitles my video player can't render, so you have to too)

We're full into the Fall season with my most anticipated show of the year, Nocturne Girl's School Lacrosse Club!

no, wait...





Nocturne Girl's School Lacrosse Club is the show that will parallel Nogizaka Haruka no Himitsu, or Haruka's Secret as I call it, cause it's shorter.  We naturally have to re-establish all the characters and situations in the most cliche way possible.



They went there...

Frighteningly enough, I needed that, as I forgot who most of these people were, since they are nearly dropped by episode 9 of the last series when they go into full Yuuto/Haruka shipping.  The thing they didn't need to re-introduce is Yuuto's angst.



How can he even think stuff like this when presented with past example like this:



Or even THIS???



I'm just bitter because I lost a forum argument thanks to Yuuto's waffling...

So let's concentrate on the new things they introduce.  While visiting an in-store with a convientily face-hidden voice actress, we introduce this running plot point.



This means something...

Next, we introduce Alice, a member of Haruka's maid force.  A loli assassin - it's been done, but never quite  like this.



Mace is for girls

Then they introduce fog.  A LOT of fog.  This is actually a new trend in early evening anime "soft" censoring that deserves its own blog post if I ever get around to it.  My guess - increases the non-foggy DVD sales.



AAARRRRUUUUUUUGGGGAAAAAA!

Finally, they re-introduce the awesome King of Akihabara, Nobunaga!



Two?

I love the fact that he is the most clued in character who long ago figured out the connection between Yuuto and Haruka, and is acting as their otaku guardian angel without realizing it.  He is the Deus ex Machina for Haruka's Secret, god bless him.

So in summary - love Haruka, you get more of the same.  You hate Haruka, you get more of the same.  Guess where I fall?
